Does the Area Have What You Want?

Does the Area Have What You Want?

Imagine going to a restaurant with your family for dinner. You're

planning on ordering a nice pasta and salad. Your heart is set on it.

But, after you go to the trouble of driving there and getting a table,

you discover that pasta is not on the menu.

That’s disappointing!

Of course, it’s only a meal. You can go somewhere else next time.

But, what if the same scenario played out once you had moved into a

new neighbourhood? Imagine you were counting on public transit

being in easy walking distance, but discovered the nearest stop is

four blocks away. Argh!

That's why it's important to ensure a neighbourhood has the

characteristics you want — before you make an offer on a home you like.

Think about what you want most in a neighbourhood. Consider work,

commuting, schools, playgrounds, noise level, walking and cycling,

hobbies, shopping, entertainment, etc.

If there is a neighbourhood feature that is very important to you,

check it out for yourself. For example, if easy access to a main

highway is desirable for commuting, take the route for a test drive.

You can get a lot of information on a neighbourhood through the

listed property's description and MLS listing.
